    Default HPT strips with no batch number, expiry etc should I trust the results?

    Hi Ladies,

    Long story short.. when TTC DD I kept getting 2 clearly visible lines on the Pregnow brand tests within 1minute, but they were all BFN's. What I did notice was the test line was grey not purple like the control.

    Fast forward to today I took a no name brand HPT strip test which has no batch number or expiry date. I got 2 lines within 2 minutes (instructions said to read at 5min). Test line is faint purple. So did a cheapo mid****** test also no brand name, all writing was in Chinese so don't even know the wait time. Got a second line, faint but definitely there within a minute & I didn't use FMU.

    My boobs hurt, especially my nipples. I have no idea when af is due - my cycles have been all over the place since having DD and I have never fallen pregnant naturally.

    Would you trust the results after all the false positives last time?
    I can't get a store bought test till Thursday or get to the dr until next week.

    I managed to get a test to take home from my GP at my daughters appointment today & OMFG it's a definite positive. I guess the internet cheapie's were right after all. Now crossing everything that all is well & it's a sticky one. This is the 1st time I have ever fallen pregnant naturally, I'm in shock.
